Read full description of the books:
As a backer of this anthology collection on Kickstarter, I may well be biased, but this is a generally excellent collection of 24 short horror stories told by a mixture of familiar and new names in the horror comics field, separated by dated adverts that evoke feelings of yesteryear when comics like Tales from the Crypt and The Haunt of Fear graced shelves.
In a tome this large - that features opening and closing essays talking about horror and its development through comics over the decades - there are inevitably going to be hits and misses for each reader. What is surprising is just how few of these tales were misses for me. Instead, I was regularly pleasantly surprised by how good each new tale was. The stand outs for me were Brian Keene and Tood Galusha's THE LOST VALLEY OF THE DEAD (not surprising, as it's based on a nifty short by Brian Keene called THE LOST CANYON OF THE DAMNED that appeared as a bonus story in An Occurrence in Crazy Bear Valley), THE UNSEEN by Justin Jordon and Tyler Jenkins, ALL THINGS THROUGH ME by Mike Oliveri and Mike Henderson, Scott Nyder and Nate Powell's THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY, and finally, GESTATION by Marguerite Bennett and Jonathan Brandon Sawyer. There's even a killer gallery at the end of the collection that contains some jaw-dropping artwork.
Rachel Deering was the driving force behind this anthology and she deserves full credit for bringing together a huge array of talent that delivers in spades ... and with nary a Cryptkeeper in sight.
